In recent months, the Yemeni Army have carried out a series of attacks on Saudi Arabia’s airports and oil facilities. On August 17, a drone attack against the Shaybah Saudi oil field caused a fire in the area. In response, the Riyadh-led coalition attacked Yemeni resistance positions in northern Yemen.
